Compass Theatre - Theatre Usher

Details of the Charity:

Providing residents of the London Borough of Hillingdon with subsidised culture and arts spaces and venues, for producers of public arts activity which is for the artistic or educational benefit of Hillingdon residents, on a non-profit basis.


Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Our vital Front of House Ushers welcome audiences inside, show them to their seats, keeps them safe while the show takes place and assist with evacuating the audience in an emergency. They sometimes are also asked to sell programmes, merchandise or ice creams.

Ushers stay with the audience during the performance, and sit on a jump seat at the side. They arrive ready, a full hour before a show starts and leave after the audience has left. Full safety training is given by the Front of House Manager before every shift.
